Bedford Academy is celebrating its best ever A level results with 96% of our students achieving three A levels at grades A* – E,
and an overall pass rate of 100%.
The Academy also saw an increase in its top grades this
year, bucking the national trend which has seen a slight fall in both A* and A grades and the overall pass rate.
“We are absolutely thrilled with this fantastic set of
results,” said principal, Claire Smith. “They reflect an enormous amount of hard work
by both students and teachers who can all feel justifiably proud of their
This year we are also celebrating another
milestone as we send our first student to Cambridge University: Emma Anderson,
who achieved A* grades in Biology and Chemistry, and an A in Mathematics, will
read Natural Sciences at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge. Student Kamilla Sala was another top achiever
with three A*s in Chemistry, Mathematics and Further Mathematics, plus an A in
Physics, and will read Natural Sciences at the University of Nottingham.
The Academy, which opened just four years ago, set out to be
a school of opportunity with a particular specialism in Science and Technology
and, according to David Russell, chief executive of The Harpur Trust, a Bedford
Academy sponsor, this year's results show very clearly that the Academy is
fulfilling its initial vision:
“The creation of a dynamic centre for learning to bring out
the very best in young people, open them to new opportunities and help them
realise their full potential has come to fruition. On behalf of The Harpur Trust, I congratulate
Bedford Academy students and teachers on their fantastic achievements today,”
